As I cover this year’s wildfire in California and Oregon, I noticed that homes with backyards facing open space seem to be at a greater risk for fire. Also, wildfires tend move faster uphill. So I guess you should not buy a house on a hill or ridge with the backyard facing a public park. One guy I know is happy he developed an empty lot near the center of town. It is next to a firehouse.
